Family Magna Carta

Should by chance there be a paradise on earth, where would it be? Within a family of course. As such, it’s the inborn duty of each member of a family to nurture and preserve this paradise with full loyalty to the family, with complete trust in the family, and with total dependence on the family.

According to the unwritten charter of a family, it’s the bounden duty of each member of the family to avoid committing offenses of commission, or offenses of omission as regards the family. A little explanation is called for here. Offenses of commission are offenses committed through action against the family. Offenses of omission are offenses committed against the family by non-action when action is needed for the good of the family.

These offenses of either category could be against the entire family or one or more of the family members.

This is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God!
